Never Ending Quiz

Postby Alex0paul

Purpose of this thread is for the person to correctly answer a question to then pose the next question.

Eg. I ask a snooker question then Coland gets it right so he asks the next question.

First Question;

Which player was banned for 3 years after winning the IBSF World Championships for trashing his hotel room?

Free ball on last red _nominate yellow.
Yellow as colour
Yellow as first of colours

That's not quite right.

By your logic then after the free ball yellow on the last red, then the player would still have to go for the red after the free ball sequence.

The answer is not quite correct then, waiting for a full correct answer.

Free ball on last red, take the yellow as a free ball, potting the red on the same shot (no reds left now). Pot the yellow after the free ball, move on to the colours, starting with yellow obviously. Yellow potted legally on three consecutive shots.

That would be a break of six, am I right?

Pink Ball got it spot on :spot on: and yes, it would be a break of six. Unlike what BadSnookerPlayer said, the red DOES need to be potted on the same shot, otherwise it's only 2 consecutive yellow balls.

Pink Ball you earn the right to ask the 3rd Question.

Self-styled King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Beat It came about because Quincy Jones asked Michael to write a 'black rock song'. He duly obliged.

That was tooo easy, godammit! Pinkie technically wins, but he was ineligible as he'd just handed over. Also, I like Cloudy's knowledge of Chinese surnames being first. Over to Cloudy

Hahaha methinks Pink Ball got a little bit shafted there. Anyway thanks Dan.

Q. Against whom did Ronnie O'Sullivan claim his first ever World Championship match win at the Crucible?
